Aren't you supposed to replace the Stewart pump every 60K as well? Just curious -- I could've sworn I read that in the past.

That should be OK -- all the engines should be the same. You could even get the engine from a 525/530 as long as it was the same model (M54).

Isn't that part of the VANOS function? I mean, it looks normal to me -- even the SMG M3 I drove did the same.
